Chelsea dropped two points at the weekend against Southampton with their defensive vulnerability proving costly despite Timo Werner shining in attack.
Christian Pulisic returned from the start and Hakim Ziyech made his comeback from injury, which gives Frank Lampard options.
Rennes and Krasnodar are the other teams in Group E, and with the game being at Stamford Bridge, the Blues will be especially motivated to bounce back here and begin their European campaign on a positive note.

What is the team news?
Billy Gilmour is now just three to four weeks away from returning from a serious knee injury. Edouard Mendy has a thigh problem and will likely miss this game like he did last weekend. That means Frank Lampard may switch to Willy Caballero again, given Kepa Arrizabalaga’s latest blunder.
Thiago Silva was late returning from international duty, but should shake off any jet lag to feature here.
Jules Kounde is out due to coronavirus, which should see Karim Rekik or Sergi Gomez start alongside Diego Carlos. Idrissi is also out, while Aleix Vidal was not selected for the Champions League squad. While Julen Lopetegui may recall Luuk de Jong and Lucas Ocampos.
Chelsea: Caballero; James, Thiago, Zouma, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Havertz; Ziyech, Werner, Pulisic
Sevilla: Bounou; Navas, Rekik, Carlos, Acuna; Rakitic, Fernando, Jordan; Ocampos, De Jong, Suso
Draw: 5 / 2
Sevilla: 11 / 4
Expect some more goals here, Chelsea look desperate in their search to grab some control in games. They maintain plenty of firepower though, which could prove pivotal, we’ll lean towards the Blues edging this with one of their match winners settling this in a 2-1 victory.
